Parasitic poker machine bugs are crawling over the streets and homes of Tasmania in a new campaign from Bad Bets Australia.
The bugs, which are a cross between cockroaches and poker machines, aim to highlight the parasitic nature of the gambling machines, which sucked $200m from the Tasmanian economy.
The ad features the bugs haunting Tasmanian neighbourhoods at night in the style of 80s horror films and b movies.
The animated anti-pokies campaign was created by Jumbla and the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in a bid to lobby the government to remove poker machines from pubs and clubs across the state.
